Drops an extended stored procedure.
This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. Use CLR Integration instead.
Executing sp_dropextendedproc drops the user-defined extended stored procedure name from the sys.objects catalog view and removes the entry from the sys.extended_procedures catalog view. This stored procedure can be run only in the master database.
In SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2005, sp_dropextendedproc does not drop system extended stored procedures. Instead, the system administrator should deny EXECUTE permission on the extended stored procedure to the public role. In SQL Server 2000, sp_dropextendedproc could be used to drop any extended stored procedure.
sp_dropextendedproc cannot be executed inside a transaction.
The following example drops the xp_hello extended stored procedure.
This extended stored procedure must already exist, or the example will return an error message.
USE master; GO EXEC sp_dropextendedproc 'xp_hello';
